House contract accepted

We are well on our way to be first-time home owners!

Our contract for a house in Liverpool, NY was accepted. We are approved for a mortgage, and the house passed the home inspection with little that needs to be done. woohoo.

The house, or soon-to-be our house, is a farmhouse colonial, 1900 square feet, with 2-stories. A 2 car attached garage, unfinished basement, 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms. Situated on .25 acres, and is adjacent to a "green space" in the back. On a cul-de-sac, built in 1968. Definitely needs work, but within our price range :) And has a real wood burning fireplace.

Heidi and me during home inspection.

Hoping for a closing date of December 2nd, or sooner!

Lots of room for people to visit and stay (hint hint Texas friends).

Heidi with her helmet.
Heidi has been wearing the helmet for close to 2 weeks now. The arrow was to help me with positioning, which I no longer need. She is not bothered, but does like to scratch her head when the helmet is off. Heidi wears it 23 hours a day, including naps and night time. We are praying her head is malleable. Heidi was rolling, but needs to learn this skill again while wearing the helmet. She started scooting forward the day before she received the helmet, and had become faster with the scoot. Heidi is most motivated by electronics. ha. Unfortunately, insurance declined covering the helmet, as her numbers were not significant enough. But we felt that if there is a treatment out there, we should take advantage of it.
